The wider estate
Dudmaston Estate has lots of offer with managed woodlands, beautiful walks and tranquil pools - a real haven for wildlife. The estate is run sustainably with conservation at the heart of everything we do. If a tree has to be removed every piece of it is used, whether for logs, furniture or woodchip for our boilers - nothing goes to waste.
Get on your bikes and bring the whole family into our woods for a great adventure. Whether you’re experienced or just a beginner our mountain bike route through the woods is a fantastic way to take in the scenery. Open 365 days per year this is a great way to enjoy all the seasonal changes on this beautiful part of the estate.
Get the family together and enjoy the Autumn season by exploring our wonderful woodlands. The colours of the beech trees which line the pools are spectacular at this time of year and definitely worth a look. Park at the Old Sawmill car park and take our Ranger’s self led trail whilst ticking off lots of your 50 things.
Our estate is brimming with wildlife and our Rangers work hard to manage the estate in a way that helps them thrive. Of the 225 varieties of solitary bee, we have 90 living here; we also have a large colony of White Admiral butterfly. Love dragonflies? Explore around Big Pool for a fantastic display.
We have many groups of volunteers who work with the Ranger team. With Shropshire Wildlife Trust, the Shropshire and Staffordshire National Trust volunteers and groups of volunteers who come on different days there’s lots to get involved with whether working outdoors or in the workshop.
